Title: MinVerChk - Determine Minimum Downgrade Firmware Check Tool
Post by: Life4Beers on 10 November 2012 à 14:57:22
Determine the base firmware of your PS3 with a few steps and images.

The first thing you have to do is:

- A PS3.
- MinVerChk
- USB flash drive


1 - Transfer the MinVerChk file to a USB flash drive, as if it were an upgrade (e.g. x:/PS3/UPDATE/PS3UPDAT.PUP).
2 - Insert the USB flash drive into the PS3.
3 - Install the update from XMB (This will fail and display the Firmware Base).


after running the tool if it says your base firmware is 3.55 or below then you can downgrade, in order to downgrade you will need to buy a hardware flasher such as the e3 flasher or Progskeet.
